Anyways, I read quite a few books (who would have thought that going from England to Portugal would take 12 freaking hours in between airport transfers, flight, delays, etc. Gee.) and finally watched The Dark Knight and X Files. I loved the former with every fibre of my being (a 10 out of a 10) and was not overly impressed with the latter, I am afraid, despite of all the amazing shipping goodies thrown at me.
So which books did I read?
Dangerous Lover came highly recommended by Katie (babs) and as usual, I was not disappointed. This is more like an erotica book and I happily surprised that there was actually an interesting plot and a huge, cute (ok, so cute many not be the most appropriate work to describe the hero, since you know, he was a tall, hard, killing machine who talked very little) , teddy bear of a hero who loved the heroine since FOREVER and would do anything for her. I felt it ended rather abruptly though, and I wanted more of a reconciliation between them. But all in all, a very good read. 6 out of 10.
I have seen reviews of Bet Me and I was curious to read it. I got a copy out of the library and read it in one go. It reminded me quite a lot of Bridget Jones’ diary but it was infinitely better, I thought. Funny, light, delightful, heart warming. I still remember some parts with tenderness after days I read it. Perfect summer reading. 7 out of 10
I read a few more which will be reviewed in full soon. But because I am EEEEEEEEEEvil, I would like to tease you about this:
One of the best romance novels of the year. It is heart-warming , sweet, hot and on top of everything it has Sebastian St Vincent on top of his form being as debauched as ever. His scene with Evie was amazing. Plus fantastic little scenes between all the wallflowers and a Lillian-Marcus fight/reconciliation that was PURE unadultered Lisa Kleypas at her best and the new hero Rafe Bowman ? Drool worthy.
Now I am off to catch up with your blogs!
